CHICAGO, IL – Jessica Simpson appeared on Oprah to discuss among other things her weight and John Mayer. Long time friend Tonya was there for support!
Jessica Simpson is making headlines again and not exactly for the best of reasons. Her relationship with ex-boyfriend John Mayer has been placed in a new light after some ill-advised comments by Mayer. In addition, critics have once again jumped all over her weight issues. She appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show yesterday to shed some clarity on her life. Tonya, the world’s fattest cat, was there to lend support.
“She’s been a close friend of the Simpsons for years,” said a spokeswoman for Tonya. “In the midst of this new media storm about her life, Jessica reached out to Tonya once again for support and Tonya did not hesitate.”
Simpson addressed the matter of John Mayer first. She told Winfrey that she felt betrayed by his words and actions and that she would not accept an apology from him.
“Sexually it was crazy,” said Mayer of their relationship in Playboy magazine. “It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say, ‘I want to quit my life and just f—ing snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f— you, I would start selling all my s— just to keep f—ing you,” he so eloquently added.
Simson “hopes he gets his life together” but says she hasn’t accepted his apology and that part of her life is over.
Next the two moved on to her weight issues. The singer/actress told Winfrey that she is “absolutely” happy with her body. “I love my curves,” she said. “I’m not going to ever be size 0 and I don’t want to weigh 90 pounds.”
The two continued to address her weight issues but one could sense a confidence and inner happiness from Simpson. Whether Tonya is to thank for that is unknown, but the moral support sure didn’t hurt.
“I’ve been with her the last few days leading up to the interview. We talked about everything and laid all her feelings on the table,” Tonya said through her spokeswoman. “The most important thing I tried to accomplish was to reassure her that she’s beautiful, no matter what others think. I told her that Big is Beautiful and that Bigger is Better.”
